I have wondered for a while now why Lego has incorporated Bluetooth technology in to their Lego sets because of the vast potential and now they finally have in the form of the Lego Mindstorm Bluetooth NXT Robot Kit. The kis comprises of lots of motors, gears, electronic parts and cams the can be assembled in a multitude of ways to build a large number of different robots, all of which can be controlled by the latest wireless Bluetooth technology.
To start with the kit can be a little daunting being faced with so many different parts like sensors that respond to touch, distance and sound and various motors to choose from. The Bluetooth Controlled Lego Robot kit also has a NXT controller box that is basically the brains of the operation that has 32 bit ARM processor, screen and 512 kb of memory. It will take you around 2 hours to create your first robot but its well worth the time. When finally assembled you can them move your robot wirelessly and pick up things with its claw. You programme it using a Mac or PC by compiling a list of actions, these take only seconds to transmit to the robot for it to move. 6 AA batteries will last about two hours.
Thermostatic Shower Panels have a lot of great features like body jets which add a feeling of invigoration to your morning shower and they also come in an amazing array of really stylish designs and colours. Top brands to look for are Ultra, Hudson Reed, Milano and Pheonis to be really sure you are buying a Quality Thermostatic Shower Panel.
This is a shower panel by Hudson Reed, as you can see from the picture they look really modern, even futuristic. Hudson Reed Shower Panels really to exude quality and style in equal portions and come highly recommended by pretty much every bathroom store worth its salt.
These wooden shower panels are certainly different, they add an organic touch of style to any modern bathroom, especially if they are near the beach. i really prefer these wooden models to the more futuristic ones, i just think they are more fitting for a bathroom.
The Body jets on these shower panels have a pulsing massaging effect and are perfect for relaxing after a really hard days work or a tough workout down the gym leaving you feeling a lot more energised, every bathroom should have one in my opinion.

When we talk think about gadgets we do not really think of bathroom gadgets but these look really cool. These are not just taps, they are waterfall mixer tap with colour changing LED lights, they actually change the appearance of the colour of the water coming out of the tap. They come in some pretty amazing modern and stylish designs too.
This one really shows off how the colour of the water changes, these taps can easily transform any tired bathroom into a stylish modern one at very little expense thanks to one of these gadgets.
This minimal wall mounted tap has a light at the end that cleverly turns the colour of the water from Blue to Red depending on the temperature of the water, this is a really clever idea and i think it has an elegant appearance. A more simple design for those not so keen on the waterfall mixer tap designs.
This tap is my personal favourite, i really like the smooth pebble effect shape in contrast to the square shape taps, the green LED light is not too over the top as well and i think so i think it all really works very well together.

You cant really class these as gadgets but we think they are a selection of funny t-shirts, at http://www.zazzle.com/feel_safe_at_night_sleep_with_a_nurse_hoodie-235284498867351868 they have a large range of fun and amusing t-shirts from different career areas, the first ones we saw were nurse related t-shirts. We found these to be quiet funny but also important, nurses have a really hard job to do and are often way under paid for the work they do so we were pleased when we saw the slogans on the t-shirts. The first one say’s “doctors save live, nurses save doctors” we liked this t-shirt a lot as doctors seem to get all the praise and indeed the pay for the job they do and nurses don’t seem to get either.
The next T-shirt we liked because it shows the sense of humor that nurses have and indeed need to perform there job, the slogan reads “Feel safe at night,sleep with a nurse.” Nursing can be a very difficult job a lot of the time and if nurses did not have the sense of humor they do the job would be even harder than it is.
So please support our nurses by buying a nurse t-shirt and take a look at all the other great t-shirts on offer at http://www.zazzle.com/bazingatshirts* or by clicking on the blue link on the line above.
